Nets injury report: Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge to rest Wednesday against Rockets
The Brooklyn Nets will give Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge on Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets. The Nets narrowly beat the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night and give some veterans some rest in the second of a straight set. The Nets remain without G / F Joe Harris, who is recovering from ankle surgery. PG Kyrie Irving (staff) also remains out for Brooklyn.
The Nets at rest KD and LMA have a pretty big impact on Wednesday night’s slate. Without KD, the Nets will rely on James Harden for revenge on the Rockets. This is a big ongoing story conflict and Harden will be a very popular GPP game. Harden costs $ 11,200 on DraftKings, which is a pretty good price considering the kind of usage we can see. Vintage Harden normally has a cap somewhere in the 80 to 90 point range.
The rest of the Nets lineup is packed with players less than $ 5,000, so it’s definitely a bag of value. Patty Mills ($ 4,800), James Johnson ($ 3,300) and Cam Thomas ($ 3,100) will be popular pieces in both formats. Really, it’s hard to go wrong with anyone on the Nets list given the pricing and the showdown.
We’ll see what the books have for this game once the line returns to DraftKings. The Nets should remain big favorites, although the game could be more competitive than you think. The Rockets have won six games in a row and are playing basketball well despite the lack of key players (Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr.). This can be a good place to grab the ML Rockets if it’s still full. Outside of Harden, the Nets are rolling out a pretty lackluster roster.
